    Btw, did you want an origami-ish one or a micro-sized cutout version of one?

    well, it would be hard to make an origami versoin, but if you can figure it out, it would be really cool.

    The Tomahawk is similar in layout to the Hawkeye. You are welcome to develop off of it should you choose to. :)
